A day off!

Or, why are there only 24 hours in a day?

It seems to me that when a person works 12 hour days that their day’s off should be a bit longer than 24 hours!

Here I am, on my day off, and I find myself doing laundry, cleaning the house (don’t have a panic attack, gentle readers – just surface cleaning is going on here), getting something ready to take to Sandy and Bud’s tonight for dinner, and I am about to leave to watch #2 daughter play in her tennis match at school.  I have done little to no knitting (soon to be remedied at the tennis match), no spinning, not one fun thing!  If you could see my bloglines – I don’t think I will be caught up ever!

Thus why I think that day’s off should be MUCH longer than 24 hours!

Tomorrow will be one LONG day.  Work 12 hours and then I will be making a beeline to see/hear #2 daughter at her spring concert.  If I sit in the back do you think anyone will notice that I am in my work clothes???  There will be no time to change – the concert starts at 8PM – I should arrive moments before the start.   Oy.

Alright all, I am off to see my tennis pro!  Have a good evening all!

  1. And here I thought you were at work! I drove over to Lansing and passed it and thought of you both ways!!
    Get to knitting something, girlfriend. Seriously, you will find a rythmn and get back to spinning and knitting, even with the 12 hour days. Good to see you posting, now to do some myself!

  2. Yup, that’s going to be your life now. It takes some adjusting too. You’ll adjust. 🙂 Sure wear your uniform. Proudly. Wear it.
    Just stop doing housechores. Or do half of them, then you might have some time to knit.

  3. I’ve often thought that work days should be shorter – maybe 20 hours – and the extra time should be added to the non-work days. How else does one get anything done?

    Hang in there.
